Antonio Carluccio's Story
Antonio Carluccio is one of Italy's great food ambassadors. He has written thirteen bestselling books, including Complete Italian Food, Complete Mushroom Book and Italia and has also made numerous television programmes - the latest being Two Greedy Italians.
With Priscilla Carluccio he ran the Neal Street Restaurant in London's Covent Garden and spent 10 years developing the hugely successful Carluccio's Caffes. In 1998 Antonio was given the Commendatore award, the equivalent of a British knighthood, for his knowledge, enthusiasm and lifetime's service to the Italian food industry, and in 2007 he received the O.B.E.
